Avène Body Oil

If you had the chance to rifle through a French woman’s bathroom cabinet, you might be surprised to find this hydrating body oil in lieu of the heavy lotions we favor stateside. But we think you should take a cue from our sisters overseas. This fast-drying formula cures dryness, and it isn’t the least bit greasy. Plus, the clean, woodsy scent has the faintest whiff of pine—no wonder skincare-obsessed Parisians consider it a staple.

Best used after showering

I finally gave in to all the dry skin advice in beauty articles that body oil would cure my chronic dry skin. The first time I tried this oil, I wasn't impressed. The floral smell was stronger then described and me self conscience. It didn't seem to absorb as quickly and didn't seem to help my dry skin so the bottle sat unused in my cabinet for bit. On a whim, I tried it again. Except this time I used it right after I got out of the shower and that's when the magic happened. It made my dry scratchy winter skin feel soft and lush. My skin will feel a little slick after application but not enough to effect your clothes.

Effective product, but odor not great
Purchased

I purchased this mainly because of the price, and for the price it is an excellent choice---but the odor is not one I love. I did know the odor was piney before I purchased the p;roduct, so I was prepared. It is smooth and provides a nice touch to wet skin---so it's a good product for the price. Just be aware, the scent is unusual.

Nice and moisturizing
Purchased

I wasn't too crazy about the smell - kind of a old lady smell, but it is very moisturizing. A little bit definitely goes a long way. Great size product for the price.

Not bad
Purchased

I bought this in hopes it would be like the L'occitance oil but it does not have the same consistency and I wasn't a fan of the smell either.

Avene Body Oil

Absolutely LOVE LOVE this body oil. I tend to have dry skin especially through the winter months and Avene Body Oil does the trick. The oil is not to thick and is quickly absorbed into the skin. I usually put it on before drying off in the shower. It makes your glisten and it smells wonderful. Everytime I put it on my husband tells me how he loves the smell. Will be buying this product AGAIN....

Works But
Purchased

...I don't care for the smell of this product! I'm getting used to it, (my dogs LOVE it) but I'll be looking for something commensurate that doesn't stink. The smell dissipates but not fast enough for me.

I liked it, but I prefer more natural look. This kind of made my face look dirty.

It gave me a nice glow but I didn't fully understand the reusable puff and how I could travel with it.

Super soft aftereffect

This is a thick product, and it's so much easier to apply than lotion. Put it on right after the shower, and there's no greasiness afterwards. Great smelling, great feeling.

Hydrating

I have scaly dry skin, but I hate applying lotion. I don't like the scent or I feel it doesn't work. I wake up with dry skin again eight hours later, so why bother. However, this oil keeps the powdery dryness away. It absorbs quickly and the scent is not over powering at all. I hardly notice it. To me, it is worth the time to apply because it actually works.
